Call it sick, call it twisted, call it ingenious, but say hello to Tikker, the watch that counts down the minutes, days and years left in your life. Because if there’s one thing you should be constantly reminded about, it’s your inevitable mortality. YOLO, right?
Before activating the watch and beginning your own digital march towards death’s cold clutches, you fill out a questionnaire (appropriately titled “About Time”), where you provide information about your health, fitness, etc. and then it tells you when you are going to die. God, that’s morbid.
It even comes with this cartoony promotional video! Death! Cute!
The creator of the watch, Fredrik Colting, came up with the idea after his grandmother died, and views the watch as a positive tool to remind people of how little time we actually have on this earth, not just a negative, constant reminder of HOW LITTLE TIME WE ACTUALLY HAVE ON THIS EARTH.
The project is not available to the public, technically, but a Kickstarter has been launched and you can get your very own Tikker death watch by April 2014 for a pledge of just $39 dollars.
So that’s what it costs to see when you’ll kick the bucket. Would you like to know when you’re going to die, or are you just content YOLO’ing your balls off until you YOLO yourself into an early grave?
